Craig Alan Satterlee is bishop-elect of the North/West Lower Michigan Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. He was elected to a six-year term on May 21 at the synod assembly at the Best Western Plus in Lansing. Craig assumes the responsibilities of the office on September 1 and will be installed as bishop on Sunday, September 22 at a time and location to be determined. Craig will post information about the transition on the mitten page of this website as it is available. Information will also be provided on the synod website.
Craig serves as professor of homiletics at Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, adjunct professor at the University of Notre Dame, and dean of the ACTS Doctor of Ministry in Preaching Program. He “belongs to the relatively small group of working homileticians whose work can justifiably be said to have changed the agenda of the discipline.” Craig's books are described as “superb examples of practical theology, remaining fully theological while engaging on-the-ground realities in the life of the church.”
